Summary

Environmental policies that impose restrictions within one location may be undermined or reinforced by 'spillover effects,' the movement of actors, processes, or knowledge to other locations. Such spillovers are an important consideration in the design of interventions seeking to reduce commodity driven deforestation. In these settings, global markets and mobile actors can move deforestation and conservation behaviors over large distances, complicating efforts to measure and manage spillovers. In this webinar, Robert Heilmayr (University of California) and Kim Carlson (NYU) discuss a paper where they quantify forest loss and conservation spillovers from the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification system in Indonesian Borneo (Kalimantan).
